So you live or are visiting Ryedale … welcome to this lovely part of Yorkshire! 
And if you are lucky enough to live in the area, then you know we are spoilt for choice for things to do now the summer holidays are well underway. 
Let Station Taxis take you from door to door this summer ... and read on for some more brilliant attractions in the area! 
'The Best of Country Shows’ takes place in the picturesque village of Thornton Le Dale on Wednesday 9th August. 
Thornton Le Dale Show is a traditional country event and is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. 
This, the 98th show, takes place at the Showfield, Maltongate, in the village. 
The World In A Weekend – that’s the tag line for this month’s Atlas Festival, which arrives at Scampston Hall, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July. 
If you think you know festivals, think again! This independent event focuses on music, travel, food and entertainment from around the globe. 
World-famous bands and artists such as Toploader, Reef, N Trance, Fatman Scoop, Tall Paul and many others will join travel bloggers, explorers and adventurers for this spectacular event. 
Have your 'herd'? Two of Ryedale's finest annual festivals take place in July - time to get out and enjoy yourself!  
Living in a rural area such as Ryedale has its advantages: beautiful views, peaceful atmosphere, and a fascinating history. However, it can be diffcult to get about. Station Taxis, along with Totally Socially Locality (Ryedale), have come up with an affordable solution ... 
For many of us, particularly those who don’t own a car or find it hard to get around, the lack of public transport is a concern. 
We’ve teamed up with Jo Oliver, of Totally Socially to develop a new village ‘hopper’ service that will link the village of Langton to Norton and Malton. 
We’ll be running a ‘book and ride’ service from our offices at Malton Railway Station, from Burythorpe to Malton with pick ups at Langton and Birdsall once a day, Monday to Friday, for the cost of just £2.50 per journey. 
Now in its 131st year, Malton Show will soon be upon us! 
This year’s date is Sunday 2nd July at Scampston Park, near Malton. 
Malton Show is on a more modest scale than the larger agricultural summer shows that take place in the area. 
Often called ‘the friendly one’, Malton Show is a firm favourite and certainly attracts the crowds. 
The show includes cattle, sheep and goats; the fascinating fur and feather section; show jumping; a miniature railway; sheep dog trials; craft tent; a horticulture section; farm machinery; heavy horses; trade stands; food stands and a public bar. You can take the dog too! 
This year’s chosen charity is the League of Friends, now celebrating 40 years of raising funds for Malton Hospital. 
Malton Show has experienced good weather over the last few years, and if the sun shines, remember to take the sun cream, as Scampston is a real suntrap and the temperatures can soar. 
Tickets prices are £10 for adults, £8 for over 65s, kids aged 11 to 18 cost £5 while under-11s go free. 
If you decide to take your car, parking is free. However, Station Taxis can also take you from A to B on what will be a busy day on the roads. Give us a call on 01653 696969. 
Did you know … 
• In 1874, the show was held at Orchard Fields in Malton, the year from which the event became known as Malton Show. 
• Reverend C Peach was the very first president, and after his death in 1886, he was described at the Father of Malton Show. 
• Malton Show was cancelled during the two World Wars. Livestock classes were also cancelled during foot and mouth disease outbreaks. 
• The show used to be held at Showfield Lane, Malton. Due to lack of space, the show moved venues to Scampston in 1998. 
Just a few miles ‘up the road’ is Dalby Forest, the venue for this year’s spectacular Forest Live concerts. 
As we know, Ryedale is a supportive community and we are heartbroken for our colleague Kevin and wife Trudy following the sudden death of their daughter, Emma, aged just 30. 
York’s prestigious racecourse is just a short drive ‘up the road’! 
June’s events include Mid Summer Raceday on Friday 16th and the Macmillan Charity Raceday on Saturday 17th. 
June’s line-up at Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre is amazing!
